no matter what. we have created an environment that is toxic for businesses. we have radical deficit spending. we have a federal government out of control with the amount of red tape and things that they are imposing on businesses. we wonder why then we do not have any jobs and why that jobs are being sent overseas. talk is fine, but the fact of the matter is, the unemployment and the deficit and the whole situation with the economy speaks for itself. it is now working. big government is not the solution. >> thank you, congressman. our next question is a senior co editor for the globe news magazine. please ask your question. >> congressman akin, would you speak of your commitment to improving public school education in missouri? especially given the educational choices you have made for your own children. i am referring to your decision to home school your children and senator mccaskill's to send at least one of her children to private catholic schools. >> thank you for that question. all of us understand that education is critical. one of the things we have in america is something c

out of in the field with detecting drugs is more difficult than in a turning environment. we do not advocate any particular role. what weight to give to each of them, i think that is a decision to be made by each court. what is really important is to say, it is not enough to just say a dog is trained. there has to be something more. >> for example, on record, very often the police testified -- if you looked at the cases off the field, the only record is when the dog alerted and they found something. in the best of circumstances -- that is what with all the respect what i am saying is not extreme. it is basic for the protection of our fourth amendment rights. >> if you are a trial judge, you only see the cases where the person comes into court because they found marijuana in the truck. if you are a 12 judge, maybe a dog got lucky this time. the only see the cases where something is found. i think a high score have to say, be skeptical. everything is before you made it is the stigma of a dealer, but you as the judge needs to view that it skeptically and tell the dog hammer and the

on to the right track, get our country moving again economically by just creating an environment that allows the private sector to create jobs but also a president who will keep us safe and treat our military in the way that it should be treated. our military is there to fight and win wars, to defend america. that's it. it's not a laboratory for social experimentation which this administration has used it for. so i'm not looking for someone who is theologically aligned with me. in the primary we had that ongs. i was a supporter of rick santorum and we can do that. and that's a natural inclination of evangelicals but in the end we want someone who shares our values in terms of the policies that will recognize religious freedom, that will recognize the importance of the family and to the point of the caller made about the difference between the inner city families and he made some allusion to the white caucasian family has access to more government support. actually what strengthens the opportunitieso that children have is that family unit, that mom and dad that they grow up with. unfortunatel
that the rise of the rest of the world was not only creating a new geopolitical environment, but an economic one and it was possible that our political leaders have not gotten their arms around it, and i believe rob shapiro's paper today will provide a better handle on what has actually happened to the american economy so hopefully the next president can take policy actions to make things better than the last decade or so. please join me in welcoming rob shapiro, good friend, a thought leader and economist.

♪ ♪ >> first and foremost we have to create an environment that our small businesses can thriver. when we look at tax reform that's needed for the whole nation. when we look at the border we need comprehensive imfwration reform. our immigration system is broken. we can't get workers to go back and forth. these problems create an impediment to commerce. so we have to be able to provide a work force that can move back and forth easily and we can't do that because of all the impedestrian ments that are not there by having an effective immigration policy. >> some of the issues have to do with the issue that was raised here with regard to being near the border, seasonal work that comes on and being especially susceptible to trends in unemployment and the economy. we need some things here desperately. we need a commuter plane come across and go back. that's not easily allowed in our system. we need sequestration that is looming at the first of the year that will hurt military readiness. but for the defense industry it would be devastating. >> watch more debates online nit and throughout the day satu
that he's been able to operate in the most difficult environments. as the governor just said he was the governor of probably the most democratic state in the country. but as a republican he sat done with people of different views and said let's figure out what we can agree on, what we can do. now this country has a lot of problems. we're spending money we don't have and that's got to end. we know mitt romney knows how to balance budgets. we know mitt romney knows how to fix the problems that are facing this country. [applause] so we need a leader like that in washington. i can tell you from experience the man in the white house has fallen short on his job of uniting people and pointing this country in a direction that offers us all hope. he has failed in that effort. i can also tell you we have tens of thousands of people in virginia who dedicate their life in uniform. many veterans know what i speak because we thank you and virge has hey rich heritage in playing a huge role in the defense of this country and the promotion of its national security. and thank you for that [applau
for my issues which are limited government and lower taxes and less regulatory environment. i think in colorado where you find is you move west across the united states. the republican voter is a closet-libertarian type loder where it is limited government. it is an old west at age, keep government out of our lives. you see democratic voters as evident by our governor who moved more toward the center. if they could have another moniker it would be the common sense party. limited government and less washington, d.c. involvement. >> the governor is a democrat. what is the makeup of the state legislature? guest: we have a slight majority in the statehouse so we control the state house. in the state senate you have a slim majority. our attorney general and secretary of state and state treasurer are three other statewide elected officials. the governor, democrat who is very popular is obviously a democrat. it is representative of the voting population which we are helter-skelter and we have democrats and republicans controlling all sorts of key offices. caller: i have two questions. gove
since the 1980s. i've worked in this type of environment and i've never struggled for a job. you've got thousands of people from wisconsin out here working saving their homes, livelihood their families. president obama wants to take away hydraulic fracturing after he's reelected and i'm nervous about that. and the coal industry as well. i'd like to hear your thoughts. guest: well, i think you have a good right to be nervous. the president obviously maybe was a little deceptive during these debates. you would think he was for fracking and key stone pipeline but you've got to judge the president not by what he said. you've got to judge him by his record. the president needs to -- the president spent $400 million kind of trashing mitt romney before the first debate. and trying to build up people's negatives about mitt romney and that disappeared in about 10 minutes in the first debate. and we've seen that now all across the country. so for folks like you in north dakota but frankly in all the states you've got to look at these two candidates and say who is really going to get us to energy
's not -- the government can set up an environment that is helpful towards business, but under large taxation and policies that will crush business, i see that as a route that obama is taking. right now the free market is struggling. host: in the "financial times" this morning, u.s. lanes to stay on growth course -- u.s. lanes to stay on growth course. like a yacht in the wind, no sooner does the u.s. economy catch a breeze from one direction than a gust comes in from another and it struggle toss move forward. growth was in the third quarter of 2012 as gross domestic product rose at an annualized rate of 2%. housing gave the economy a boost. businesses, investment set it back. the growth data point to an economy with little momentum leaves considerable doubt about its resilience to the so-called fiscal cliff of tax rises and spending cuts due at the end of the year. host: back to the phones. mark in bethesda, maryland, on our line for independents. mark is optimistic. go ahead, mark. caller: hey, how you doing? yeah, i definitely do feel optimistic about the economy. i feel like things are kind of getting
, but we are not operating in a vacuum. we are operating in an economic environment where we have $16 billion debt in washington. families are struggling. we need money here for the american people here. i will stop giving our tax dollars to support terrorists. i support what joe manchin supports regarding responsible exploration for oil and gas. senator brown is try to block exploration of oil and gas and ohio. he does not support our coal mining families in eastern ohio. i will work to keep these energy jobs in ohio. i believe in ohio, energy equals jobs. >> most of what josh said wasn't true, about where we spend money, and energy exploration. let me answer it this way. i told you about the roundtables. a farmer told me we can save billions of dollars taking away the farm subsidies with a better safety net. i went to senator thune from south dakota. he got it amended into the farm bill and it passed in july. it can be the china currency bill. i teamed up with kay bailey hutchinson -- i can list 10 or 15 things that were good, bipartisan efforts that are making a difference. >> trea
in the -- the structure and the -- the environment in the middle east. with the arab spring came a great deal of hope that there would be a change towards more moderation and opportunity for greater participation on the part of women and -- and public life and in economic life in the middle east. but instead we've seen in nation after nation a number of disturbing events. of course, we see in syria 30,000 civilians having been killed by the military there. we see in -- in libya an attack apparently by -- well, i think we know now by terrorists of some kind against -- against our people there, four people dead. our hearts and minds go to them. mali has been taken over, the northern part of mali, by al- qaeda-type individuals. we have in -- in egypt a muslim brotherhood president. and so what we're seeing is a -- a pretty dramatic reversal in the kind of hopes we had for that region. of course, the greatest threat of all is iran, four years closer to a nuclear weapon. and -- and we're going to have to recognize that we have to do as the president has done. i congratulate him on -- on taking out osama b
go to your questions. given we are in a choose your own adventure environment tell me your instinct. it's a very close election. do you think that the public at large of the losing side, whoever that might be delared to be is going to be prepared to accept losing? >> no. >> no. certainly it's going to feel very different than it did in 2008 where mccain voters certainly wanted their guy to win but also you talk to a lot said boy on election night right you sort of felt a sense of we just -- america just made history here. that was that hopeful moment you saw the president's moments spike up. right direction, wrong track, spiked up. and then it crashed back down to earth. so that has been completely wiped off. now the real question is, is it going to feel like 2004 where there's the frustration and the hand wringing and the i can't believe this from democrats. or is it going to be like 2000 where we get to the position of well this race was tolen? there's an ill legitimate president? and that's going to come down to are we going to have another hanging chad piece of all of this? is i

tense, less mill tar is particular environment in the region. then if you compare it to even taiwan, that issue was brabblingted between the two countries, between china and the united states. it was bracketed. you could similarly have something between the united states and iran over israel and the palestinian issue that is bracketed. i must come back to this other issue. this is in our strategic interest to come to terms with the islamic republic of iran, just like china. keep in mind, when mao was in charge, when nixon went to see mao, he had just presided over the killing of three million chinese. they didn't have a nuclear energy program, they tested nuclear weapons. the issue here is, what is in the u.s. national interest, not whether we think iranian government officials are good or bad, but even there, this is another critical challenge for the united states. as minor populations become more empowered in each of their countries they are not going vote for or support a secular democratic u.s. model for their government. they're not going to do it. they're not going to accept
into consideration congest in, say, economic development, or the environment. what it is doing in north carolina is punishing those cities and towns that have major interstate highways going through them including here in rocky mount. the current formula of this division puts any money into '95 which is an interstate highway connecting the south with the north, that means rocky mount has no money for any other rural road. this is unfair to those towns and cities along the 95 corridor, i-26, 577, id-5 corridors because they're being punished for having interstate highway going through them according to this equity formula. this has got to be changed so we have a separate revenue stream and more equally distributed for those areas that have interstate highways going through them that serve not only all of north carolina but serve the entire region. i agree with some of the public- private partnerships and some of the pay-as-you-go funding that north carolina has been doing. >> we have a lot of voters submit questions to was on line. this one had to do with mental health. that topic came up time an
